Two Nights On Dartmoor

Well Dartmoor started off well enough with lovely, defined trails and well placed stiles that were taller than we are. For all intents and purposes, Dartmoor was a fucking doddle, despite the clouds looming closer, the kind of clouds you don't really want to see when you're just embarking on a three day hike with [...]

The Beast That Is Mt Santubong

Mount Santubong is the big, pointy mountain that you can't fucking miss as you ride into Santubong unless you've had your eyes gouged out by an angry macaque because you refused to hand over your crisps. It looks steep. It is steep. I don't know why we thought we were in any manner of physical [...]

The National Park-A-Thon Begins

The first national park we decided to check out for our ten day Sarawak NP Extravaganza was Kubah, home of palms and frogs apparently, which left us in no doubt on what to expect. We figured we might as well throw ourselves right into a trail or two as soon as we got to there, [...]

A Park Full Of Waterfalls

We'd flown into Miri from Labuan on account of the fact we didn't want to go through Brunei. Shit to do around but not in Miri includes Lambir Hills National Park which is an easy day trip from the long distance bus terminal. We dragged ourselves out of bed at some god awful hour to [...]

Stuff To Do In Danum Valley Besides Sweat A Lot

Kinabalu National Park

This is probably the first time my sister has come to meet me overseas and we haven't done something utterly terrifying like a bungy jump or a skydive or a trek up a fucking hill to altitudes that your respiratory system would most definitely not approve of. She did want to climb Mt Kinabalu but [...]

Yeah Okay, So It’s Predominantly About Rice

We did want to check out some manner of lookout way up yonder but Germaine quickly talked us out of that by simply pulling a face like we'd just told her we wanted to hop to Manila on one leg. Backwards. Naked. She well and truly pissed on that bonfire when she followed this face [...]
